Where We'll Be:
Upcoming Workshops and Webinars
We give both commissioned and independent presentations on topics that we hope will be of use to the broader evaluation and nonprofit field. Upcoming conference presentations and speaking engagements are listed below.
|Webinar: Evaluation Essentials for Nonprofits (April 24, 2014)
Are you ready to launch an evaluation, but not sure where to start? Wondering how much you should budget for it, or who should be involved? Although 90% of nonprofits are engaged in evaluation, it continues to be one of the most misunderstood and mysterious functions of nonprofit management.
In this Evaluation 101- level webinar, Veena Pankaj and Ann K. Emery will introduce key evaluation concepts, approaches, and methods. We will also explain the four stages of the evaluation lifecycle (planning, data collection, analysis, and action). Since planning is one of the most valuable stages of the evaluation process, we'll discuss planning tools like logic models and evaluation plans. Finally, we'll debunk common evaluation myths and cover the top trends in nonprofit evaluation so you're ready to hit the ground running.
We offered this same webinar last fall. Here's an excerpt of 35 of the 119 slides that we covered during that webinar. We hope this overview gives you a feel for some of the topics you can learn about on April 24.
|Webinar for the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers (April 28, 2014)
All regional association staff are invited to join Kat Athanasiades and Veena Pankaj for a one-hour webinar on April 28th at 1 pm ET. They will review the evaluation life cycle and where your evaluation planning fits in; answer questions about the Aggregate Logic Model and other evaluation questions you may have; and discuss some of their available services that can help kickstart your evaluation work.
